I'm doing a Mechwarrior campaign set in the Outworlds Wastes

I'm doing a Mechwarrior campaign set in the Outworlds Wastes. Currently the players are on the planet Tanz, which I had chosen because it was left as a blank slate (so far). But other than Wynn's Roost and a bit on the Traders Domain, is there any more information on the Outworlds Wastes? Raulpascal (talk) 08:59, 15 February 2021 (EST)

Information on Galaxy Commander Laurie Tseng

I am researching information on Galaxy Commander Laurie Tseng, Loremaster of Clan Ghost Bear. This character is mentioned many times but the only information i can find is name, rank, position, and command. If anyone has any ideas of what books i should be looking at researching this character let me know. Straw Boss (talk) 17:43, 18 May 2018 (EDT)
